Places to Eat:

**Fiji is different than most destinations in regards to eating. Resorts include food plans since there are no restaurants on most of the islands. The places to eat that I recommend below are located in Nadi on the main island Viti Levu**

Travel Hacks:

  • Buy the Bula pass for island hopping
  • Make sure to take out Fiji currency because the surcharges are very high
  • Do not drink the water; bring a water bottle and purchase large water jugs at the market
  • Bring a lot of sunscreen because the sun is very strong
  • 100% recommend leaving the mainland to explore other islands
  • Make sure to watch a sunrise and sunset 
  • Buy travel insurance; I recommend purchasing through World Nomads
  • Buy alcohol and water before you leave the main island to save money
